studying history = useless
Europe ApziIsKing 
studying history and overall just studying arts and humanities is useless.. science and math have done so much more good for the world.. history/arts and humanities are just for lazy bums who are too lazy to study something actually complex and then they end up jobless or in a shit job like mcdonalds or just living on welfare and the people who already paid for his college degree now have to pay for his welfare too

history is important because it gives us and understanding for the past and an understanding for the future, which can prevent wars etc. understanding is very important

you dont have to study that. You get enough knowledge by going to school and having history classes for more than 5 years.

you really think 5 years of fking school is enough? haha
2018-01-17 17:29
Enough to have basic knowledge about the important dates and main issues to that time. Ofc you can go much deeper but imo its not necessary for people who are not interested in history or incidents in the past.

are you retarded lol? teachers in germany make a lot of fucking money and have to pay almost nothing for insurance,etc because they are employed by the state

has nothing to do with luck tho,its a job like anything else
2018-01-17 17:30
yes because teachers are most wanted in every region in every school you need at least 15 history teachers, smart german
2018-01-17 17:32

every school usually has 2-4 history teachers,given there are around 50.000 schools in germany thats still alot of jobs

No, i think history is very important, it helps us to understand ourselves more deeply and it helps us to not make same amount of mistakes that we made in the past, i think if you truly want to you understand yourself you have to study history because you are not only 70 years old creature,You barely can understand yourself even in 70 years but amount of wisdom that history offers that is wisdom of all mankind produced for many thousand of years, Then you can actually understand and know who you are. Art is very important to human beings, People can't live without art.

2018-01-16 14:21
I did hate history in high school and in primary school but I'm currently studying at university, I don't study history anymore. Still, my point stands: history or the arts/humanities will not cure cancer or make your internet faster
2018-01-16 14:26
learn your history man, theres a ton of knowledge and wisdom that has been forgotten that we couldve used today, knowledge about medicine that the industry doesnt want us to use because of politics an economics is just one example. its still out there but big people doesnt wanna use it
2018-01-16 14:34

I don't think so. If we learn history,we can learn from the past's mistakes,to make a better future for ourselves.We will know where we came from,who we are,our identity,as a nation for example. I think everyone should know history because of this,and it should be a must. Irl it might not be that useful because you are most likely not going to have a better time finding a job or something like that,but life is not only about that.

Science and culture are going on along equally. Both have the same impact on humanity, none stands out. Saying that science is superior and history and overall arts is just going to show your precious intelligence and actual knowledge. Man without art will be a depressed slave without a personal life and man with no science will be a lust junkie and bad habits addict bound to die young. Both needed equally, you can choose towards which one you'd lean on but don't forget the other one. Science will give you knowledge, art will give you understanding. Have fun.
2018-01-16 14:48
+1 And every person should know something from science and something from culture. Although your profession is based on science you should know something about history and culture. And it goes visa versa.

Maybe people are not into science and math? Think about it: if everyone had to study those and be some sort of engineer/scientist, the oversupply would devalue the market value of those professions. The market can only take so much, therefore we would have a lot of well educated scientists in welfare. Simple supply and demand for you.

2018-01-16 16:22
history is very important to develop your brain , just like math. And also in math some people say stuff like : "hurr durr hurr durr why would i want to learn about sinus and derivation and stuffs like that since i will never use it irl in my job hurr durr" its very good for your brain even if u will use it or not
2018-01-16 15:52
Well, people who know maths have more chances of getting a good job then people in humanities, thats truth.
2018-01-16 15:54
Mayb that is true. But although humanities are needed as much as math.
2018-01-16 21:10
Of course it is brother it gives you knowledge ( but never absorb teachers´s "knowledge") Because it most of the times distorces the truth and many of them h8 the bible. Anyways im saying this because i already finished school and i studied humanities, i got called many times racist and homophobic because of my biblical views against homosexuality and because i was not in favour of this islamic invasion that they call " refugees" when most of them are economical migrants and muslim troublemakers.
2018-01-16 23:10
aybe you are right, people have learned nothing from the past, we still have Islamophobia (it has already happened against the Jews), economic collapse (crisis of 22), first world war, soon after second war ... The world thinks that it learns , but keeps repeating the same errors differently.
2018-01-16 16:01

2018-01-17 00:51
You will always have subjects that you will not like, so you just need to focus on the ones you like and try to build a life around it. In my case, I hate physics, maths and all that number sh*t, that's why I chose to study education, history, philosophy and stuff like that.
2018-01-16 16:04
I respect your position but what you said is so dumb. Next time you listen to music or use a computer, close your eyes and turn down the volume since art is useless.
2018-01-16 16:07
+1 that's a very good point
2018-01-16 16:20
yeah but what made the computer or the internet possible? or who created the services/gear that you use to listen to music, i'm pretty sure that engineers made it possible
2018-01-16 20:50
My friend without art you would have nothing. Just think about it what everything art is. Art includes also the literature and in the past people were educated, informed and entertained by it. Art includes also the architecture. Architecture of each age of the history. Without it i cant imagine what would be. And much more... E: And in art there is also web design. Idk how hltv would look or if it even was without an art.
2018-01-16 21:08
Exactly what I meant by saying: "use a computer". No art - no web design. Humanitarian sciences and exact sciences, just like hapiness and sadness, can't live separately.

2018-01-16 20:47
no we study history so they can easily brainwash us cuz we are stuck in the past and care more than what happened 60 years ago rather than focusing on whats happening now. u think any country would allow so many refugees without passport if there wasnt a ww2 history and they all scared of being called nazis if they dont accept them.

You are sooo wrong my friend. Without art you would have nothing these days. And history... there is no doubt that it is important. Mayb you need to understand it better what exactly art is. And if you think hisotry is useless then idk my friend. I am just curios what is your age or in what type of school are you in?

Have those things made our life into better or worse? For example agriculture was invented, because some smarty had an idea that other people can produce food for him, so he can just sit on his fat lazy ass doing nothing. Do you think wild animals are as depressed as we are? We messed up our lives and soon also all life on this planet. By trying to act god. The truth is that we are stupid monkeys who have no idea what we are doing. Soon we will travel to another planet just to destroy it's life :-)

the worst part about being smart and studying politics and history, is that you realize how people fool each other, but you cant say it to people, cuz they will judge you as crazy or retarded and you will only start useless arguments about it so enjoy life, try to fuck womans, drink a lot, get high, travel, etc and dont worry about history of the world or anything xd 100% waste of time

its even more needed nowadays, since it looks like we dont learn from history, we keep doing the same mistakes
2018-01-16 23:47
In the future maybe we'll learn from our current mistakes
2018-01-17 00:51

2018-01-17 01:38
Thats bullshit.
2018-01-16 23:48
all kind of information are useless, unless you know what to do about it and history is need it, because there is no need to invent the wheel over an over again, that would be a waste of time just the fact that we are able to pass knowledge to the next generation makes us the most advanced speices on this planet nt 1/8

I have Art & design history classes (studying graphic design) and I find it pretty useful. It helps you to understand the base of styles, gives you the knowledge develop your own or/and to adapt to different customer demands (connected to the knowledge acquired in other classes obviously). And not to mention that is a source of inspiration (and this one is very important). So basically this thread makes no sense to me. Oh and btw, graphic design is related to art and you can find plenty of jobs that have nothing to do with Mc Donald's... 0,99999999/8 Sincerely, (._.)

Studying history is my hobby and it's fun when you read in depth about causes and effects of some things. But yeah, the history they teach in school is often presented in very boring and shallow way, they force you to learn some dates you don't give a shit about etc. Also as a degree in it doesn't really feel worth it nowadays.
